More than 100 headteachers from schools across Northumberland have come together to discuss new assessment systems.

The Life After Levels conference, at Cramlington Learning Village, focused on finding the best way forward for schools to monitor pupils’ progress as the current national assessment system is being scrapped, giving schools the freedom to find a method that works for them.

Speakers at the event offered examples of best practice.

Northumberland County Council Director of Skills and Education Andy Johnson said: “School leaders have been looking for proven methods to measure, track and communicate pupil progress. The conference provided a great opportunity for schools to share good practice and learn from the best.”
